While Covid is on the rise and traveling is discouraged, the campus is closed and that means most students have to commute home. 

Whether you are driving to visit family or flying back home, a good holiday commute should be filled with music, podcasts and movies. 

I grew up in a Christmas fanatic family. We are most easily comparable to the Griswolds and there is no denying it. Our yard stays filled with lights till the end of January and the Christmas season begins before thanksgiving — sometimes even before Halloween. 

All that said, I would consider myself somewhat of an expert in holiday music and movies. 

We can start with music. Here are my top favorite songs for the Christmas season this year.

  1. Ribbons and Bows — Kacey Musgraves
  2. Not Christmas till you come Home — by Norah Jones
  3. White Christmas — George Ezra
  4. It’s been a year — Stephen Day
  5. You’re a mean one Mr. Grinch — Tyler the Creator
  6. Merry Christmas Darling — The Carpenters
  7. Santa Claus is coming to town — The Jackson 5
  8. Step into Christmas — Elton John
  9. Another Wonderful Christmas — Joey and Rory
  10. Up on the Housetop — Pentatonix

Have a happy holidays!
